Top 20 Songs: Week of April 30-May 6, 2012


Wanna know what’s hot in pop music for this week? Well, you’ve come to the right place, as PopCrush is providing a list of the Top 20 Songs for the week of April 30 through May 6, 2012. As always, we’ve based our list of the hottest 20 tracks on radio spins, chart performance and what the fans have been listening to.

This week, Canadian songstress Carly Rae Jepsen is making her debut with ‘Call Me Maybe,’ while the guys from the Wanted continue to make their way closer to No. 1 with their lighthearted Eurodance hit ‘Glad You Came.’ Gotye is also continuing to pave his way towards the top of the list with ‘Somebody That I Used to Know,’ and Maroon 5 had a massive jump from No. 18 to No. 8 this week for their new single ‘Payphone.’  Meanwhile, Rihanna‘s ‘We Found Love’ is slowly fizzling out, as are ‘Twilight’ tracks from Bruno Mars and Christina Perri.

Check out the list of the Top 20 Songs for the week of April 30 through May 6, 2012 below. Did your current favorite song make the cut? Also, be sure to tune in to PopCrush’s weekend radio show on Saturday and Sunday, where fans can hear this week’s list of the Top 20 songs as well as the winning About to Pop tune — Congrats to Adam Lambert on his About to Pop triumph!
